Dave Longdon has a great write-up on the fast-rising women's local road racing scene, in which he highlights the roles of veteran mentors like Gina Kavesh and Martha Walsh.
I have a daughter, graduating from college this year. She has a bike and she's strong. Her life is wide-open ahead of her, and I know she'll try many wonderful things. I hope that if she ever decides to try bike racing, she'll have access to a mentor like Gina or Martha.
